I would like to tell to Tomtom Developers that I regret to see that the lastest products are stlll not manageable from a Linux Desktop.
As for me I am using an ubuntu 10.10.

Unfortunaltely, there isn't seem to have any effort from Tomtom to bring tomtom home usable under linux desktop !
I think this is only a political more than technical problem because tomtom home is made with portable technology (mozilla XUL) known to run under linux...
The only missed software part is the detection module to detect correctly your tomtom...
There are some effort in wine (http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7711) to emulate windows usb detection, but without success for now...

another vote for an Ubuntu port here. I certainly wouldn't rely on anything using Wine with the current 64bit release (10.10) so I'd also appreciate a native Linux version.

To be honest, I don't think there would be enough of a demand for that platform.
I think that's largely a matter of marketing. If people experienced Ubuntu they would soon be convinced. Just being able to shut down in about 2 seconds is an important consideration for me. Being able to get up and running in about 20 seconds means that I am happy to shut down as soon as I have finished one job and not waste energy leaving the computer on and doing nothing.

and yet companies such as dell offer Linux systems as an alternative to Windows. I think you might be surprised how many people choose Linux based op systems in preference to Microshaft
